The Prize

PURELY PARAIBA our gorgeous coffee table book introducing the new gem of gems, the spirited neon blue and green Paraiba Tourmaline, or simply Paraiba. This is an extraordinarily vivid and bright electric gem with aquatic colors. Its vivaciousness is hugely exciting and exhilarating. As if shining from within these gems enchant with their mesmerizing luminosity. It is this glow from within that fascinates Doris Hangartner the most.

Discovered only in 1987 in the northeastern state of Paraíba in Brazil and subsequently in 2001 in Nigeria and Mozambique, these finds hugely excited the gem world. They are exceedingly rare and strikingly beautiful. A true connoisseur’s gem.

It is Doris Hangartner’s wish to share her love of Paraibas and to invite you to experience these gems with all your senses. Gems may not only be seen with your eyes but also felt with your heart.
